Save the Student Founder | Expert on budgeting, making money, saving money

Owen Burek is the founder and editor-in-chief of Save the Student. He started the website in 2007 as a first-year Geography (BA) student at The University of Manchester.

Having lived the struggles of a student, Owen became passionate about educating university students on personal finance, making money and important life skills they forgot to teach at school.

In 2012, Owen wrote the book The Essential Student Guide to Money. This was replaced in 2019 with The Student Money Takeaway, a free resource distributed to UK universities every year supporting over 100,000 new students.

Owen has been an expert on student money for over 15 years. He has appeared on BBC News and contributes to major publications including The Independent, The Guardian, HuffPost and Entrepreneur. He also works closely with a variety of public body organisations that share our goals.
